Well i have 1 more summer with the cbr600f2, then its time for a new 600. I am open to any and all brands im just going to buy the bike that has all the qualities etc that im looking for. I also don't wanna buy baised on 1/10th of a sec accell times. So if ya own a (r6 zx-6r/6rr gsxr600 honda cbr600f4/f4i/rr) provide a little bit of imput on how the bike is in traffic.. what is the power band like. Am i gunna jump on this thing and all it wants to do is pop wheelies. is it well balanced. hows the clutch feel, the tranny.. etc etc.. things that only someone who lives with the bike everyday can tell me. the over all ups and downs in the real world.... and no bashing other brands saying buy *manufactures name* just cuz they have won a bunch of races on there race bikes, which are piloted by a guy that has more ridding skill in his pinky finger then i do in my whole body.
